ONE of the worst things you can do in any election campaign is start too early. Preparation is all important and getting ready in good time is essential but huffing and puffing for too long before people are ready to turn their attention to the election at hand does not do you any favours.
So, after long months of a quite uninspiring presidential drama, things have finally started to get interesting.
No one can argue but that the race for nominations on behalf of Dana and David Norris is quite a spectacle and very entertaining. We would of course, have been denied this was it not for Sean Gallagher and this should be remembered. Councils such as Longford and Donegal were all set to vote Gallagher, but he told them he no longer required their support as he had his nomination and this opened up the path for council’s to back other independents.
